1. Is that Lincoln or a Song Sparrow?
2. Song sparrow?
3. Is that Lincoln again?
4. Savannah Sparrow?
5. Song sparrow? Bill looks heavy and bird is also bulky
6. Swamp sparrow?
7. Swamp sparrow?

Thanks,
Srinivas.

Swamp for pics one and two. Unsure on 4 and wouldn't mind seeing another picture of five (song or Lincoln's) but others all Song Sparrow.

It's worth pointing out, I think, that the photos got posted in reverse order of their numbering. Going by the numbers on the photos, the birds are:

1.jpg, 2.jpg, 3.jpg, 5.jpg - Song Sparrow
4.jpg - Savannah Sparrow
6.jpg, 7.jpg - Swamp Sparrow
